The first weather testing of architectural materials and finishes was recorded in 1906 at the Government Agricultural Experiment Station in Fargo, ND. Outdoor testing facilities later opened in South Florida in 1931 and in Arizona in 1948, where climates are particularly harsh. Outdoor testing facilities have now spread across the world to North and South America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia.
